The Michael Flatt Foundation Makes $5,000 Donation to New Building Capital Campaign
The Michael Flatt Foundation, a long time supporter of the library, donated $5,000 on January 7, 2020, to be applied to our New Building Capital Campaign.
“The Michael Flatt Foundation’s ongoing commitment and dedication to our community has moved the library forward,” expressed Jaema Berman, Library Director. Since 2015, The Michael Flatt Foundation has given a total of $16,500 for a fiber optic cable, programming and the New Building Fund. Although the library receives public funding, The Michael Flatt Foundation has continued to provide additional financial support.
The Addison Township Library is honored to join with The Michael Flatt Foundation which shows a passion for literacy and a commitment to spreading the message of how influential libraries can be in a community. Through this donation, and others, we aim to build the first library ever built in Addison Township.
This significant contribution will help us reach our fundraising goal. Fundraising efforts however will continue until we’re able to meet the expected cost of the new building. Details on the project status, building design, and our fundraising progress can be found on the website of the Addison Township Public Library Capital Campaign, www.letsbuildalibrary.org.

Groups, Clubs, Teams and Schools can now band together and purchase an inscribed brick.
The total cost is still $250 per brick, but this new feature let’s groups of people combine their donations toward a brick or bricks.

We’ve also setup group bricks for each of the four schools in Addison Township. Show your support by donating to your school’s unique brick.

Here’s snapshot of where we’re at with the fundraising for Addison Township’s First Library.
Every Donation Matters
We’re seriously in need of volunteers to help with fundraising.
To see how you can help please call the Library and ask for Jaema, or come to our next Capital Campaign Committee Meeting on Thursday January 9th, at 11am in the Library.
Hope to see you there!
Our new building project was recently the recipient of all or most of the interior doors we will need for the new building. Our construction manager estimates this will save us close to $8,000.
The doors come from an insurance office in Farmington that is being remodeled. The doors are commercial quality, 7.5 ft tall, very heavy with a cherry finish. All of the hardware and the frames for all but the double doors were also donated. The frames are solid cherry. It’s envisioned that the double doors will open to our multi-purpose room. Each door and it’s associated hardware and frame(s) were numbered and cataloged for the future.
Volunteers traveled to Farmington and disassembled these doors and brought them back to Addison Township where they were put into donated climate-controlled storage until they’re needed.
Thank you volunteers!
